Q8387 Jacob's Ladder

74 x 86 inches
Original price: $1,100
Sale price: $750

This funky adaptation of Jacob’s Ladder feels more like modern art than an antique. This brings up the question: who copied whom? As bold and graphic as this quilt appears when hanging, the visual impact is much more subdued when laid on a bed. Measuring 74 x 86 inches, this wonderfully executed quilt can fit a range of beds from single to double to queen. There’s a 2-3/4 inch border, in a slightly different shade of white from the body of the quilt. On the main body of the quilt there are a few blocks also having this fabric. Unless you’re searching for these blocks, you will not discern them from the other blocks. This quilt has 6 inch square blocks. There are 6 inch solid white, then pieced 9 patch blocks. The opposing corners when joined together create a different horizontal pattern. Completely hand pieced and hand outline quilted, this quilt has a turned over binding from back to front finished by hand. The binding is also outline quilted, giving the look of a separate applied binding. This wonderfully artistic quilt appears to be unused. Professionally hand washed by Betsey.
